As the holidays approach do you think about the holiday traditions you practiced in years past? Is it time to start new traditions? I have wonderful memories of a Christmas several years ago spent in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Snow on the ground and the twinkling farolitos (or luminaries) casting a soft glow where they line the streets. If you are not familiar with farolitos, they are paper bags filled with sand that hold tea lights in the center. Their warm lighting on the frosty evening created such a wonderful holiday scene for me during our Christmas visit to Santa Fe.

Several years ago, my mom approached me about holiday gifts she wanted to give her friends where she lived at a retirement center. I suggested my art glass votives with the battery-operated little candle.

They were well received by her retired friends. So, we began our tradition of each Christmas I gave my mom a gift of my art glass. She would have each piece elegantly displayed every time I visited her.

Traditions and memories can be such gifts in themselves. I wish you wonderful new traditions as we enter the upcoming holiday season.

Christmas Votives

Our art glass votives make wonderful gifts, and they are packaged beautifully in a gift box. We have 18 different designs of votives.
